The meaning of digitalization for research skills: challenges for STI policy

Meissner D., Narkhova A., Plekhanov D.
This paper aims to give an overview of the ongoing digital evolution of S&T systems in general and its particular aspects: STI policies and research skills development. Within this context the study focuses on digitalization's impacts in terms of enhancingsources of new knowledge: human capital and tangible assets (infrastructures and information processing tools etc.). Hence, some highly relevant questions arise from the gaps identified during the literature analysis regarding the useful and proper implementation (adaptation/system improvement) of numerous opportunities given by digitalization. What are the new challenges for S&T systems caused by digitalization and what mechanisms could be implemented for system adaptation to them? What are the new research skills that are a high priority to acquire both by individuals and system as a whole?
